To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Directed by Susan Johnson
This Netflix original is super cute and the perfect romantic comedy, no matter what your age. Lara Jean (Lana Condor) is a major homebody and romantic whose big secret gets out—literally. She’s written intense letters to all the crushes she’s ever had…and these letters get mailed out. Lara Jean now has to confront all her crushes face to face. Maybe romance isn’t as farfetched as she believes.
Netflix definitely hit the nail on the head with this movie. Though it was inspired by novel of the same name by Jenny Han, it is adapted exceptionally well. The characters are well written—you’ll be connecting and falling in love with them all at each move.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is all-around exciting and sweet. Netflix just needs to come out with the sequels based on the rest of the book series.

Disenchantment – Season 1
Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein, the creators of Futurama and The Simpsons are back at it with their new Netflix original series. The series follows Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson) as she fights her father, King Zøg (John DiMaggio), and those around her to be the princess she was literally destined to be.
She doesn’t want to get married, doesn’t really want to be a princess, and angers her father at every turn she gets. She befriends Elfo (Nat Faxon), an elf who left his home to explore the world, and Luci (Eric André), her own personal demon. Together, they go on adventures, find things out they didn’t know before, and realize they don’t have a choice about their roles.
Like Groening and Weinstein’s other shows, Disenchantment has its fair share of dark and adult humor. While you might not be laughing out loud, you will have a few chuckles here and there. The series has enough twists, deep moments and comedy to keep it interesting, but you might find yourself glossing over things that probably aren’t important in the long run.
